JUST SOME X-MAS PRESENT IDEAS | #10 A HANDWRITTEN LETTER TO FRIENDS

Isn't that a great idea? So obvious, so easy to do, not to buy and so personal – but who does this nowadays? For me it is always a pleasure to open a letter and seeing that someone who is next to me write me some lines with his hands, with a pen, a pencil or a marker or something else. It is a great gift in the f***ing fast times ... It is still time enough to do write a letter to the people who are important for you. pics | LTG

JUST SOME X-MAS PRESENT IDEAS | #09 TELLASON W10 LONG SLEEVE SINGLE POCKET SHIRT

Damn, aren't these nice? This week Uwe E. Mair c/o AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION gave me the new SINGLE POCKET LONG SLEEVE SHIRT by TELLASON in two different versions. The shirt is based on a dress shirt from the 1950s which TONY PATELLA, founder and co-owner of TELLASAON, got in his vintage collection. I love this authentic old-school look, with that big, masculine collar, one front pocket and the “heavy duty” finish. The dark navy one is made of an unwashed 7.5oz twill from japan. Take a look at the Corozo (ivory nut) buttons – so nice. The stripped shirt is made of a Cone Mills White Oak vintage reproduction 100% cotton fabric. Its look is smarter and the wear is it too ... not so heavy duty. The fabric has a softer touch – very comfortable and a great look with its stripes. Same cut, but tow different wonderful shirts – both Made in San Francisco, California. For your last xmas buys check the TELLASON site. In Switzerland call or write to VMC and in Germany B74, Riders Room, Jeanslife, Denim&Iron, Bube&König, John Tweed and great Gentlemen's Skateshop. By the way, the orange bandana is also from TELLASON, the red/white/blue one from Joe McCoy and the vests are made by JackKnife. pics | LTG
